About John Alexander Wentworth

John Wentworth's occupation is listed as "brick layer" in the Minnesota 1895 census. Marriage: 1887 - Minnesota, United States.

Wentworth is a famous English locational surname. It originates from either Wentworth in Yorkshire and near to the city of Sheffield. This place may owe something to the Danish-Vikings of the pre 9th century, in that in the famous Domesday Book of 1086 they were both recorded as "Winteworde", and "Wynterwade". According to the Dictionary of English Place Names this means not as might be expected, Winter's wood, from the Olde English personal name "Wintra" and "-worth", a wood, but the worp or thorp, a Danish word and meaning an outlying farm, (the modern thorp or thorpe), with wintra meaning winter, and hence a place which specifically provided shelter in winter, perhaps because it was low lying. The surname has had a long and usually distinguished history, originating it is said, for many nameholders, from Rynold de Wentworth of Yorkshire in the year 1013 and prior.
